The latest Milwaukee Bucks Daily is here as Nikola Mirotic may be ready to return to action for Sunday’s Game 1 against the Detroit Pistons.
In today’s edition of Milwaukee Bucks Daily, we hear about Nikola Mirotic’s prospects of playing in Game 1, how the Bucks think they’ll handle the pressure of being a No.1 seed, and much more.
Tony Snell is still currently slated to return no sooner than midway through the first round, with Malcolm Brogdon on course to be back at some point in the second round, but having Nikola Mirotic back at Mike Budenholzer’s disposal would still make for a major boost for the Bucks.
